What should I wear to my first dance lesson?

Dancing is about movement and enjoyment. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing that allows you to be flexible and relaxed. We recommend you wear clothing that is lightweight, will not inhibit movement and, most of all, comfortable.

Do I need dance shoes?

Dance shoes are recommended, but not required.

Ladies: we recommend a shoe with a heel. No flip-flops, sandals, backless shoes or tennis shoes. Take time to make sure your pants, skort or skirt allow you to move freely with large steps.

Gentlemen: we recommend wearing a lightweight dress shoe with a soft sole. No tennis shoes, as the rubber soles will restrict movement. No hard-plastic soled shoes, as they will be slick on the dance floor.

What is the cost?

Our dance lesson programs are uniquely tailored to fit each student’s specific interests – from social to competitive dancing. Therefore, prices vary based on your needs and goals.

What if I'm a little shy or nervous?

That’s ok! It’s perfectly natural to feel shy and perhaps a little nervous. Even the best professional dancer was nervous the first time he or she danced!

Your instructor is dedicated to help you meet your goals and needs. Our program is designed to get you dancing and dancing more quickly. We believe in you. We will be there to boost your confidence and support you - every step of the way. As we like to say: "walk in and waltz out!"

How often should I take lessons?

We highly recommend that you schedule your dance lessons close together, especially in the beginning. The less time between dance lessons means the less you will forget, the less you will need to review, and the more quickly you will learn and reach a confident level in your dancing.
